Kurzbeschreibung

29. Juni 2010
Here is the fourth installment in Stella Rimington’s series of thrilling novels that have at their center MI5 officer Liz Carlyle.

As plans get under way for a Middle East peace conference at the Gleneagles resort in Scotland, alarming information comes to MI5 from a high-ranking Syrian source: two individuals are mounting an operation to violently disrupt the conference and lay the blame on Syria. No one knows who they are, exactly what they’re planning or if they’re working independently or being controlled by an unseen foreign hand. But given the stature of the conference attendees—heads of state from the United States, the United Kingdom, Israel, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Iran—no chances can be taken.

Initially, the leads look promising, but as the conference deadline draws closer and the clues lead Liz to one seeming dead end after another, she begins to understand that the threat is far greater than she or anyone else has imagined. Her most reliable tool has always been her searingly keen intuition—about what makes people tick, what makes them explode, what makes them defy the most basic constructs of society—but will it be enough to avert a disaster that may forever erase the possibility of peace in the Middle East?

Once again, Stella Rimington brings her experience as the first woman Director General of MI5 to bear in a powerfully suspenseful, intellectually and psychologically riveting tale about how the war on terrorism can suddenly—and continually—reshape our world.

Pressestimmen

"Several former spies have tried their hand at espionage fiction with great success, but
Dame Stella trumps all." --Baltimore Sun

“Fast moving, engrossing, and well constructed . . . absolutely sweat-inducing.”—Booklist
 
“Packed with the sort of detail that only an insider could bring.”—Irish Independent
 
“The impressively Ludlumesque plot will keep readers blissfully turning the pages until the end.”—Publishers Weekly

Synopsis

MI5 Intelligence Officer Liz Carlyle is summoned to a meeting with her boss Charles Wetherby, head of the Service's Counter-Espionage Branch. His counterpart over at MI6 has received alarming intelligence from a high-placed Syrian source. A Middle East peace conference is planned to take place at Gleneagles in Scotland and several heads of state will attend. The Syrians have learned that two individuals are mounting an operation to disrupt the peace conference in a way designed to be spectacular, laying the blame at Syria's door. The source claims that Syrian Intelligence will act against the pair, presumably by killing them. No one knows who they are or what they are planning to do. Are they working together? Who is controlling them? Or is the whole story a carefully laid trail of misinformation? It is Liz's job to find out. But, as she discovers, the threat is far greater than she or anyone else could have imagined. The future of the whole of the Middle East is at stake and the conference deadline is drawing ever closer. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Stella Rimington war selber beim MI5 - und schreibt spannend bis zur letzten Minute. Dazu der hochaktuelle politische Bezug. Absolut lesenswert.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Old Friends 17. Juni 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Having read several books by this author, the characters are continuously in action in each book. So one knows what to expect
a straight forward factual MI5/MI6 spy story. No fancy Bond stuff and very enjoyable.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Spannend ohne reisserisch zu sein 9. April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Im Gegensatz zu einigen Rezensenten fand ich die Fakten und die Handlung stimmig und mir hat gefallen, dass die Story nicht zu reisserisch -a lá Bond-Filme- sondern eher fundiert und nachvollziehbar gehalten ist.
Empfehlung, wer sich für Spionage ("intelligence") allgemein oder das Genre interessiert.

5.0 von 5 Sternen great espionage thriller 1. Juli 2010
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
M16 Agent Templeton in Cyprus reports that a contact Abboud insists Syrian deputy director of dreaded Idarat al-Mukhabarat Tibshirani believes that a London based Lebanese expatriate Sami Veshara and Chris Marcham intend to devastate the upcoming Middle East peace conference being held in Scotland. Disrupting efforts is expected by most counterterrorist groups, but what makes this allegation different is that the credit (and consequently the blame) will be given to Syria. With the leaders from the United States, the United Kingdom, Israel, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Iran participating, MI5 officer Liz Carlyle is assigned to investigate the plausibility and if affirmed who they belong to.

As she follows leads, Liz fears time is running out. Clues either go nowhere or lead to more questions. She begins to revise her theory from these two nonentities to hypothesize whether the original source is using a ploy to cause some other unknown havoc although why remains out of reach. Liz knows a major incident could lead to devastating chaos in the Middle East and the end of peace negotiations for years to come.

This is a great espionage thriller that readers will fully appreciate. Thirtyish Liz is at her best in her latest tale (see At Risk, Illegal Action and Secret Asset) trying to connect dots that not only do not link but add more points to the increasingly convoluted equation. Readers will join Liz as she races to prevent a disaster but by whom and why remain just outside her analysis.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Lively 16. Juni 2014
Von David Oakley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have become somewhat addicted to Rimington’s books. Having read all the rest, this one got out of order, so I am now up to speed on Liz Carlyle’s complete private life as well as her MI5 escapades. This is a pleasant casual read that with all the exotic locations and intrigue might make a good movie. We follow the lives of multiple characters, Fane, Charles, Peggy at MI5, along with Liz’s Mum and her romantic entanglements.

At some places in the timeline, Liz’s powers seem a bit implausible but this is a good yarn. You do get a good insight into what life is really like in the UK, with the class distinctions and the attitudes to foreigners and everything else.
5.0 von 5 Sternen best in the series 12. August 2010
Von Julia Walker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I've read Rimington's MI5 series since it first came out, and -- while I'd recommend all of the books to thriller-lovers -- this is far and away the best novel. Rimington has always been good at characters; even her minor figures are memorable and interesting. I can remember the young Muslim man -- code name Marizpan -- from the second book as vividly as I can recall the Irish cleaning woman in the 5th book I just finished (here's to Amazon UK). The plots, also, are always gripping and well-constructed.

In Deadline, however, Rimington gives us something close to a multi-plot novel, with all of the narrative lines converging on a massive peace conference in Scotland. It's her most ambitious book and she pulls it off well. The ideology of the characters is more fully explored than in other books and this gives some needed weight to the action.

Rimington's weak point has always been endings. In the first three books she virtually throws up her narrative hands and gives the reader loud bangs and settling dust. Here she is more thoughtful, in both senses of the word, considering motives of the losers and the feelings of the survivors. The 5th book, Present Danger, while maybe not worth ordering from the UK unless you are addicted to thrillers, isn't quite as complexly constructed, but the up-tick in endings continues with the best action sequence yet followed by a satisfying reflection on consequences.

The series was marketed early on the strength of Rimington's MI5 past, but along the way she has turned from a successful spy into a successful writer.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Strange Bedfellow 13. August 2010
Von Ted Feit - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
In the newest entry in one of the better contemporary spy series, highlighting the activities of Liz Carlyle and her co-workers at Britain's MI5, "Dead Line" focuses on the Mideast situation. A conference is scheduled in Scotland for talks between the heads of Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Iran and Israel. And naturally, intelligence information indicates there will be an attempt at a violent disruption of the conference, blame to be placed on Syria.

And once again it is Liz to the rescue, chasing after all sorts of clues, both*- false and true, relying more on her own instinct than on real intelligence-gathering. That is not to say that a real look at the intelligence apparatus is not provided by the author, who was the first woman to serve as Director General of MI5. MI5, MI6, and the CIA are all involved, along with various security forces, including the Secret Service, and local police guarding the Scottish resort where the meeting is to be held.

Written with a sure knowledge of the subject, the plot is a lot different from the standard spy story, all to the good. The characterizations are vivid, and the prose flows, and it is recommended.

I have read all the books today, and Stella's writing and story development only improves. This one is more surprising than the last. Looking forward to the next.
